Who Are We?

The WordPress Tutorial

The WordPress Tutorial is a YouTube series and blog about WordPress best practices and how to set up your blog and harness the potential of a content management system like WordPress. We go through every step, starting with setting up your blog (including hosting, domain name servers, and all that technical information), going through the basics of installing a theme and plugins and making your very first post and page, and getting to the more complex parts of WordPress such as event plugins, search engine optimization, eCommerce, analytics, and more! We know that managing a website isn’t easy to do on your own, and we’re here to help. If we don’t cover what you need to know in a video or blog post, send us your question! We want to make sure everyone has the resources they need to build their online presence. With your permission we will make a video or a blog post about your question to make sure everyone has that information.
